The Rambert Dance Company is the oldest dance company in Britain - and is a flagship for modern dance.

Dance teacher Jo Bloor said: "This was an excellent opportunity for pupils to develop their understanding of contemporary dance."
The school hopes the students will incorporate some of the lesson in their own routines.
The students are currently in the process of putting together a performance for primary schools in the area.
